The Struggle was Real

Trip Overview

Due to the recent rainfall, the river had a nice clip to it --- and we had to go upstream from the landing. Ouch. Additionally, the wife thought it would be fun to bring the little dog along that loves the water and (in general) boats, Today was not the day. The dog couldn't decided whether she wanted in or out, and the current was so strong that the much of the time was spent paddling to hold ground. Great workout though! Last notes: launch isn't the greatest (basically just steps) and the water is very shallow in many spots.
